are hysterical. >> so is the pentagon but it is 10 percent to bring us to where we were in 2006 which adjusted for inflation was not a crisis year. they have gotten spoiled with years of luxury then when they cut the budget they scream to the heavens. john: leon panetta says it would be irresponsible, senator mccain and gramm, the draconian cuts represent a threat to our national-security and must not occur. >> it is not the best way but it could be useful so it will force us to make choices. we try to be everything. deliver peace and prosperity to pretend every unstable country is the threat to an to bid the stable countries so we may have to reconsider and prioritize. john: obama talked-about the military being forced for things they don't want. i was skeptical but the tanks the pentagon says they have exceeded space and weight and power but the chief of staff warfare has changed we will never see a straight conventional conflict again but congress insists to buy more? >> it is built somewhere that is politically important it is built in ohio and 70 n. michigan keeps saying by more of them.
a year. still, in unveiling the budget plans earlier this year can the pentagon said that it would have to save a whopping $60 billion from efficiencies, if it's to afford the key priorities in an era of declining resources what has the pentagon done so far? and how do you ring efficiency from an organize as diverse and far flunk as the defendant department? joining us is david wennergren, the department's assistant deputy chief management officer. sir, welcome to the program. >> thank you. >> so your office was created co help drive the efficiencies across the department. and the goal is to save $60 billion overall. how do you do that? is it by making minor changes to just about everything, for example, legacy programs? is it through sweeping major reforms? is it eliminating work? what is the strategic approach you guys are taking to save money? >> it takes a little bit of all those things. it's a big organization, 3.5 million people spread around the world. the i.t. budget alone is 38 billion, we spend 7 billion on the department. one interesting thing about being a changed leader in
. the jackie calmes of the "new york times" and jerry seib and cnn pentagon correspondent barbara starr. i'm candy crowley, and this is "state of the union." >>> good morning from washington. with all the intrigue of a bond film, i stealthy general david petraeus arrive and left capitol hill. behind closed doors they heard him. >> his testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack. >> it was testimony that seemed to challenge white house explanations of who knew what when about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya that killed four americans. joining me is missouri senator roy blunt and mare marry congressman doug coopersburger. thank you for joining us. let's start off with the last point, and that is when you all listened to general petraeus, was he saying something different than the white house was saying in the days after benghazi about what it was, what the attack was about? sfoo well, when he came before our committee, he said really the same thing that he said september the 14th. i think on september the 14th, though, when you walked awa
keeps talking about. huge military cutbacks and the pentagon may have to lay off as many as 6,000 mistresses. that's what they're saying. >> we need to talk about the fiscal cliff but i'm dying to ask you about this scandal because it's all anyone is talking about. >> yeah. this sex scandal is all anyone in washington can talk about. i wonder why the country is in financial ruin. >>> the late night comedians had some fun with it, that looming fiscal cliff is serious business. with taxes set to rise on all americans starting january 1st, along with massive budget cuts, all of which could push the economy back into a recession. on friday, president obama and congressional leaders sat down to start negotiations about how to avoid that cliff and came out sounding optimistic. >> and i believe that we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff that is right in front of us today. >> we've already been through it before. so on friday i went to the capitol to ask house leader nancy pelosi how realistic it is that we'll get a deal done. leader pelosi, you all came out of the meeting with th
.c. it takes place in cia headquarters of the pentagon and the white house. so it's funny for me to be writing a story about a military operation were 90% of the story takes place in washington d.c. but that is what the story actually unfolded. today, unique among presidents of the united states, president obama is almost daily giving a dossier on the targeted. this is someone who's in the crosshairs of the cia or the military and obama for direct or petraeus how to make a decision about whether to shoot at a target, whether to take that person out. i know presidents have to make critically important decision affecting thousands and hundreds of thousands of lives throughout the history of this country. but it seems to me to be a new development for the president at the united states to be decided on individual targets around the world on a regular basis. i think that is probably one of the most unique developments in modern war and kind of defines right at the nature of this war that we're fighting. obama, when he said that he was willing to personally take up arms against al qaeda is now quit
. she is married with two kids. >> what do you make of the love triangle and pentagon whatever it is. >> general petraeus as he had no romaptic interest in jill kelley. yeshe was a community ambassador who connenths civilians and seemed likely paula knelt threatened by jill kelley and felt the need to send her e-mails. but i think there is it more to that story that needs to come out. paula broadwell needs to tell her side of the story. >> did the general assure you that this has nothing to do with the benghazi probe. >> he said nothing to do with benghazi or anything else. it is it strictly my personal moral failings and nothing else. >> so just a permanent tragedy that unfortunately tragically impacts the entire nation. >> it does. >> colonel. good luck as professional and civilian lives. >> thanks, go buckings. >> our expert talked about sex, power and politics after this. ♪ ♪ 4g lte is the fastest. so, which supeast 4g lte service would yochoose, based on this chart ? don't rush into it, i'm not looking for the fastest answer. obviously verizon. okay, i have a different char
and other reporters, sent to the pentagon for an investigation because the flirtatious e-mails might indicate adulterous affairs. it's a government issue. >> if we never read about it, there would have been no problem. the reason it's catastrophic is because it was leaked. this is a story about leakage. >> it's bizarre. >> it's not an investigation into the leaking of classified documents. this was an investigation into half a dozen snarky e-mails. i am libertarian. you are individualistic about this. when the fbi was spying on the sexual activities of martin luther king and other activists, members of the supreme court, members of executive agencies was not that it was individually embarrassing for them, in violation of their personal dignity, politically, in a democracy, the kind of power that comes with that information is dangerous beyond, whatever indignity is on the individual. >> we are going keep a close eye on the private activities, the director of the cia. they have valuable information. there happens to be -- that is something that -- counter espionage is a fact of life,
with two kids. >> what do you make of the love triangle or the love pentagon. >> general petraeus said he didn't have any interest in jill kelley. a communityf ambassador, someone who connects civilians with the military in the local area. seems likely that paula felt threatened in some way by jill kelley and felt the need to send her those e-mails, but i think there's more of that story that needs to come out. for one thing, i think paula broadwell needs to tell her side of thell story. >> did the general in his conversations with you assure you that this has nothing to do with the benghazi probe? >> yeah. he said absolutely nothing. this has nothing to do with benghazi or anything else. it's strictly my personal moral failings and nothing else. >> so just a personal tragedy, one oone that unfortunately tragically impacts the entire nation. >> it does. >> colonel peter mansoor. go buckeyes. thanks for being with me. >>> our experts discuss the intersection of sex, power, and politics after this. new pink lemonade 5-hour energy? 5-hour energy supports the avon foundation for women breast
they deal with something like this coming up next. >>> as the scandal at the cia and the pentagon continues to grow, a lot of attention has been paid to the men in uniforms. now there's a lot of attention focussed on marine corps general john allen because of e-mails to a woman who triggered the scandals. what about the wives and others members of the family. terry, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you, gary, thank you for inviting me. with the news of petraeus' scandal and now general allen under investigation, some wonder, does the scandal reflect military families or marriage as a whole? what do you think about that? >> i don't think it reflects on military marriages or military life as a whole. the implications for this issue are for the families who are involved and to paint the military with a broad brush, military families or military marriages to say this in any way implicates them i think is incorrect. >> how is the news receiveded by military families? this is has got to be a downer for a lot of people. >> this is definitely a sense of sadness, speaking for me personal
and the key language was changed. whether it was the white house or the pentagon. or the national security council, someone in the administration changed those talking points. only the administration can tell that. the white house said they didn't do it. so who did? the defense department or justice department? national subject council? why don't they admit who did id it? that is the question. to blame it on petraeus and clapper is wrong. whatever petraeus and clapper did, that was changed by the administration. not by petraeus and clapper. number one. the only answer is the public to demand when the administration did it, who told them do it and as far as rice is concerned, no reason she is confined to talking points. >> do you think that she, as you mention, that she had the span of information and was made sacrificial lamb? she was given talking point and didn't tell her the whole story and sent around why the u.n. ambassador was doing the sunday shows? do you think there is a level of intelligence? does she have an opportunity to know more? >> susan rice has great ability. i've known h
of the pentagon. don't ask don't tell is historic. it was passed and that had full lot that is removed from our books. we have to remember that our men and women who fought and died to this country do not have equal benefits. there is a long way to go as it relates to the full benefits -- id cards, etc. there is a whole host of things so we need to make. as well as transgendered service. that is not a discussion. it is something that is important and needs to be addressed. all of these things we talk about -- there are real life people. it is not often you can pass a law that there are real life people that are immediately impacted and feel it. in this country, the vast majority of people live in places where they are treated as second-class innocence. a young person growing up in america -- look at the three places where people spend most of their time -- home, school, and church. they are rejected in all three. encourage people that they can grow up with the same dreams as their peers. these false and demonstrated actions and successes matter to real-life people. it is felt in this country. i
're helpless. on wednesday i was at the pentagon, i was lucky enough to be there when a colleague of mine, technical sergeant joe delauria, he got a silver star for his actions in afghanistan. he was clearing a landing zone, there was a marine that had been hurt. they called in the medevac helicopter comes in, he's trying to clear the area to make sure the helicopter's not going to land on an ied. he steps on one. he lost both legs and his left arm, okay? so when i say i am lucky and i had an average experience, you know, joe was my reference. i don't want to speak for joe. he might tell you that he was lucky. he had good people that put three tourniquets on him and got him through it okay. we have a memorial down in the the -- down in florida where all the eod techs go to school. everybody that died in the line of duty since world war ii, essentially, since the school opened. so we put more names on the memorial last year than we have put on since 1945. and all told since 9/11, it's 120. now, 120, you know, that number might feel low compared to the thousands that we have lost overall, a
